Using a SharePoint list instead of an Excel ssheet #5063
Card exchange Version 6.3.1.0

How may I use a SharePoint List instead of a spreadsheet?
I have been using a simple XL spreadsheet to store the data for cards.
The data is simple text, dates, etc. and one concatenated filename that points a directory holding ID photos.

We are now switching to a SharePoint list to hold the information, but I cannot find how to connect to the SharePoint list like I used to connect to the spreadsheet.

Is that even technically possible?

Thank you for your help!

Hello D,

CardExchange does not have native support for connecting to SharePoint. You would have to connect to the underlying database and probably ask your SharePoint administrator to create a view in the underlying database for that.

Microsoft makes native connections to SharePoint possible, but to get that implemented that in CardExchange you would have to request a customization request with your CardExchange vendor and it would imply an extra cost. You would at least be required to upgrade to CardExchange version 9 Professional.

regards,
Rutger.
